NPR interview with Tea Party Patriot.
The "national coordinator" of Tea Party Patriots, in fact. Choice snippet:
Q: "Are you worried about the government workers who might be hurt by this shutdown?"
A: "I really haven't given it much thought."
She perfectly exemplifies the willful ignorance and casual cruelty that is the hallmark of the Tea Party. Audio at link.

Talk about out of touch. She barely even pretends she understands what's going on.

just like the ones who castigate federal workers for closing national parks, as if it was the workers idea.

It was pretty funny that Google's doodle on the day of first day of the shutdown commemorated Yosemite's 123rd birthday.

A couple of weeks ago, a bunch of Tea Party people were at Union Station in DC looking for the Greyhound buses. I gave them pretty easy directions which they could not follow. So I walked them upstairs. For a moment, I thought about taking them up to the roof and seeing if they'd jump-on-order like the lemmings they are. But I just left them at the Greyhound counter (which was punishment enough).
